Abandoned H-D Dealership in PA

I was out in Western PA yesterday and ran across the abandoned Ernest Cerini H-D dealership in Donora, PA. It was in business from 1925 until it was shut down in 2009. It is still full of NOS items and it looked like nobody had been in there in years. This is what the Motor Company used to be about. Not any more.

Someone there looks to be sitting on a gold mine. Need American pickers to go through and get some of that stuff out of those boxes and back into circulation. Just on the other side of my hometown. Have to remember that next time I get back there.

EDIT: I was bored and found it on Google maps...

C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.

I wonder if it is still owned by the Cerini Family.
I'd love to retire and open a Harley Shop just like that.
Gonna hafta plan a trip to Donora, PA to check it out.

Great pics! That's the kinda place I would patronize, that place has character.

I might just pay a little more, just because.

Well, now I know what I want to spend some of my power ball winnings on.

Guess I'd better go out and buy some tickets.

I am surprised no one has pillaged that place being that it closed 8 years ago.

sad how times keep flying by. That would be a great place to explore and see what yesteryear was about. Much cooler than the boutique shops that are in place today.
